Commenting on the association, Mr. Sanjay Bajaj, Senior Managing Director – Pune and Executive Oversight – Logistics and Industrial India, JLL said, “This transaction reflects the increasing importance and popularity of managed office solutions in today’s hybrid working environment, particularly for large enterprise occupiers across sectors.
